Seek & Find

Posted in Uncategorized at 7:41 am by Broken & Brave

When you are serving a cool and refreshing drink, the thirsty will step up to your sink.

“And you will be like a watered garden, And like a spring of water whose waters do not fail.”

Isaiah 58:11

I wrote a blog about the Holy Spirit. Anyone who understands intimacy with the Wonderful Counselor may appreciate my creative spin on my journey from not trusting people to trusting God. Here’s the link to a moment in my journal. Enjoy the Journey all who love creative writing. ~Nicole

Need

Posted in Uncategorized at 5:00 am by Broken & Brave

If you need help…God can bring it.

If you need support…God’s got it.

If you need encouragement…God will provide it.

If you are hungry and in need of food…God will deliver it.

If you are thirsty and in need of some water…God has supply that can quench it.

If you need a friend…God will bring one.

There isn’t a single thing that you could possibly need that God is quietly waiting and ready with an answer to supply.

What are you in need of today?

Do you need hope?

He is Hope to the hopeless.

Do you need assurance? No other assurance is more blessed than His.

Do you need a guarantee on where you will spend eternity?

Jesus is Living Water. He came to this earth to quench man’s pain and set him free.

Do you know there are oceans of blessings awaiting you? Do you know how marvelous you are? Do you know you haven’t a reason in the world to feel insecure? All of Heaven has secured space and grace for you. All you need is to be still and know he is God.

When you have been cut from a different cloth you know it. You may feel different, but this isn’t a bad thing. Don’t squander the blessing God is gracing you with. He is with you. He will help you. He will support and encourage and yes—He will and does provide. The ride may not always be what we thought it would or should be. But often times when we release and let go of our plans and whole heartedly take hold of God’s plans we realize His plan was the better and more beautiful plan after all.

Beautiful is sometimes so unique in its package and delivery. God makes everything beautiful in His time, His way, His grace.

He will show up on time and save the day.

Lord,

This day, you’ve got something on your heart to say. Have your way. Bless us. Mold us. Keep us and make a way for us. Be with us always and thank you for doing everything right.

“And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.”

Phil. 4:19

. . . and that’s a promise.

God will see your need and force despair to concede.

I pray today God would guide you and give you something truly special.

Pursued

Posted in Uncategorized at 6:05 am by Broken & Brave

“But Ruth replied, “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God.” Ruth 1:16

Ruth was a Moabite. For the most part Israelites hated the Moabites. Ruth didn’t know Naomi’s God or her people. Naomi has been living far from her kin. But Ruth had deep love and deep faith even when she didn’t know what this faith was. She clung to Naomi and was willing to go to a people different from her. She was willing to humble herself and work in fields to feed Naomi. She was willing to be the outsider. She chose to honor God. Honor Boaz. Honor Naomi. She didn’t maybe know what she was in for…but God knew. Ruth chose the high road. God always has a high road carved and paved for you.

The very essence of success is hunting after the heart of God. When you hunger and thirst for what truly matters you will not be denied. “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” (Jeremiah 9:13)

Something happens when we seek after the Giver of the Dream more than the dream…we begin to desire what He desires. For Ruth, it may have seemed as though all her dreams were dead. Her husband was dead and maybe her hopes of having children, because her husband brother was dead as well. (In their era it was customary for the brother or next male of kin to honor the dead by marrying his widow and producing for her a child). But she chose to follow anyway and devote herself to everything her Mother-in-Law was devoted to.

Something happens when we dream dreams of simply knowing the Father. This is what Ruth did. We begin to seek what He seeks. We give up what He would have us give up and we take on what He would have us take on. He is the absolute Champion of our heart, our love, our faith. With a face like His, when we seek it, become absolutely captivated by it, it becomes all we desire, too.

Perhaps this is why the scriptures say that when we seek Him He will give us the desires of our heart.

“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” (Mt. 6:33)

Have you ever surrendered something to God and asked Him to decide for you? Have you ever had an important choice or decision and instead of doing what you thought you’d like to do you considered the heart of God and choose to give the choice to Him? I have done this. I don’t think I will divulge what He asked of me, but I nailed it to His Tree at the age of 23 not fully knowing what I had signed up for. I had given God my everything and I didn’t look back. I wanted to, on countless occasion—but I never retreated. Why? Because I had tasted the dew of heaven and more of Him became all I was consumed for. I was wrecked for anything else but Him. When you genuinely encounter God you are affected and become infected with every ounce of intoxication His Presence brings.

I’ve always had this intense desire to please my Heavenly Father whatever that should require.

I think I’ve felt deep closeness and company from the Almighty since I was a child. It’s the only way I can explain the loyalty I’ve held toward God. I can’t take credit for it. He put it in me.

He put it in Ruth…

He can put it in you, too.

All we need for miracle working faith is a deeper revelation of God’s Love. That’s it!

No special or poetic prayer.

No perfect word.

Just LOVE.

So all I can suggest we all ask for is a deeper revelation of His Love.

You will not be denied….

You will be consumed.

Captivated.

Loved.

And a closeness of soul so intimate I have no words to describe it. It’s like intimacy with your Beloved—you don’t describe it, you cherish it and hold it close to your soul. But it’s personal and private as all intimacy should be.

May all the Magnetic Force of Heaven Consume your heart with unadulterated Love.

All things of God stem from this.

Power of heaven is birthed in an all surpassing Love like this.

I pray you be kissed by heaven today.
